Abstract:

Erythrocyte and plasma cholinesterase were measured frequently in two groups of subjects in one group 22 subjects biweekly for a year and in another group 9 subjects daily for three weeks. For erythrocyte cholinesterase, the average range of activity in men over a year was 8 and over three weeks was 5. The average ranges of plasma enzyme activity were 25 and 12. The average ranges of erythrocyte and plasma cholinesterase in women over a year were 12 and 24. The variation of erythrocyte cholinesterase is less than the variation in hematocrit, hemoglobin, and red blood cell number.
